Must See Thriller ~ Prisoners

Prisoners
This is a new category: new movies I’ve seen that get two huge thumbs up, but aren’t necessarily “underrated” or “overlooked.” If you like psychological and action thrillers, then you must see this… right now. When his 6-year-old daughter is abducted and the investigation stalls, carpenter Keller Dover (Hugh Jackman) tracks down the culprit himself. But his vigilante action pits him against the case’s lead detective (Jake Gyllenhaal) and puts his own sanity at risk. (Netflix) My Rating: 5.5 out of 5 Stars.

About Underrated Movies
My name is Eric and I created this blog for the simple reason that I love to find hidden gems that go under the radar. So you can get an idea of my tastes, my favorite all-time movies include (among many others) Aliens (plural), Braveheart, The Shawshank Redemption, Field of Dreams, Misery, Mississippi Burning, The Untouchables, Die Hard, and Superman: The Movie. I have a massive list of over 250 underrated, under-appreciated, and/or overlooked movies, and I am always on the lookout for more. I will occasionally update this blog with a new selection. Each entry has links to the Internet Movie Database, a top critic’s review of the movie, Netflix, a link to the trailer, and a link to purchase and/or watch the movie instantly on Amazon. I would earn a small commission if you buy on Amazon after clicking my link, so consider making a purchase if you enjoy this blog.

    Agreed man, this is a fantastically put-together thriller that has you on the edge of your seat from start to finish. Love the 5.5 out of 5 stars, too. 😀

  2. Yeah, I thought it was going to be good, but not THAT good. Possible Top 10 all-time for me.

  3. I thought it was great but the torture subplot seemed really out of place

  4. I thought it was an amazing movie. Best acting I’ve seen out of Jackman. Very underrated for how good it is.
